Absolutely correct, Gwynant.

It is all about miscommunication.

It started with Fester and his statement that there are never any bottlenecks on one part of the pier and me ‘going out of my way’ to disagree with him again resulting in Blongb completely misunderstanding my point altogether and thinking I am complaining about all the crowds on the pier but then Blongb thinks I am accusing him of taking sides with one of the moderators agreeing with him so later I am being asked to ‘educate’ Fester and so it goes on.

Please remind me what was my point? *snore*

One thing that doesn't help, BTW, is when folk simply hit the 'Quote' button when replying, but don't bother editing the quote. Too often that results in the entire - and often lengthy - post being reprinted, with just a one line comment being added by the person posting. If folk were more judicious in their use of cutting and pasting the topics would flow more smoothly and conversations could be followed much more easily. I hasten to add this doesn't apply to Blongb or Bri, both of whose quotes are the epitome of sartorial succinctness :-))).

CCBC are the main obstacle at the moment,how the lady at the North Shore protest meeting could sit there and tell us all that Llandudno was important to CCBC tourism was a disgrace.

To my mind there are two main obstacles to Tourism in Llandudno.

First it is the uncertainty and vagaries of the English Welsh Weather.

Second the lack of facilities or entertainment when the Weather is unaccommodating. 

Unless, of course, one is content to amuse oneself in any one of the multitudinous cafes!

Agreed. It just seems to be cutback after cutback in Llandudno. I was looking at the Floral Clock yesterday - its full of grass and weeds surround it. Why bother going to the trouble and cost of installing such a feature if they are not willing to maintain it to a high standard?

Laser quest, Ice skating rink, cinema, Entertainment complex - Build them and they will come. Families that is. Unless Llandudno think that the old people who come here now are going to live forever. No beaches to go on, nothing to do. Nothing to do at night (Crap all on in the arena and theatre and getting WORSE every single season)  In ten years time Llandudno will be a ghost town, mark my words.

I definetley am! But the next generation of old people are not going to come to Llandudno, they've been too aquainted with foreign holidays. Llandudno has nothing for them and nothing for anyone else either except memories.

We have been travelling abroad for holidays for nigh on 50 years now and had a great time soaking up the Sun or visiting the various sights wherever we have been.   However, I now think it is time for us to spend sometime looking round our own Island.   I would like to once again visit the places where we have travelled but never stopped long enough to experience the sights and pleasures on offer.  I want to go to Scotland again, to the West Country, The Lakes, Yorkshire and also my home County of Essex.  There is much to see and do in this Country, so we will have to brave everything the weather can throw at us, and enjoy ourselves as best we can.

Some pics of the Floral Clock, it obviously hasn't been touched for many months and is an embarrassing mess. That plant in the second photo is a very large weed, by the way!

I saw this flower bed yesterday, it's just outside the Broadway Hotel, on the main route into town from the Coach Park. It's not been touched this year and is full of weeds. very disappointing.

I was in Scarborough and York last week and whilst some of the Summer bedding plants were still awaited it was amazing the difference between there and Llandudno.People are more likely to behave in a respectful manner in nicer surroundings so you'd think it would be a win win for the Council to keep Llandudno tidy.
